      Podcast looping for Sponsors

      1 week ago

      The broadcast team wanted to get the podcast livestream out as soon as possible after we completed it on Monday night. We thought we had a good solution with a DVR-style feature available from one of our partners. Unfortunately, the feature set was different than what we thought and we ended up broadcasting on a loop.

      The team is testing something new tonight with The Patch that will hopefully get us closer to what we want -- a podcast that is available to Sponsors from the moment we wrap recording it live.

      Sorry for the screw up, we will do better next week.

      News to me

      3 weeks ago

      Heads up: there's a report out there that LT is going "digital" at the end of this month. That is not true. Just want to nip that in the bud. No idea where that info comes from but I promise you will get more than two weeks notice from its release.

      Also I want to congratulate Blaine on an absolutely top notch first season of MDB. That kid is going places.

      Monday Podcast

      1 month ago

      Tomorrow's podcast will be slightly different. I have been asking Gus for a while if we could try livestreaming the podcast at 4:00 when there are more people from the office around. Tomorrow we are going to give it a shot. Right now it looks like it will be about either 4 or 5 central, but we need to get the Free Play crew to move up their shoot to make it happen. This is a one time deal and does not reflect a permanent change.

      Tragic accident

      1 month ago

      As some of you may have heard, a group from our community has suffered an incredible tragedy. Five friends were on a road trip from Virginia to Texas when their car was struck by another vehicle traveling in the wrong direction on the freeway. Three of the passengers died as a result of the collision while two others, Kevin DiCicco and Hannah Galbraith, were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Kevin has been released from the hospital but Hannah is still in intensive care recovering from her injuries. Both of them and all of their families will need whatever love, prayer and support you can offer. This is an unbelievable tragedy for so many people. Our hearts go out to all of them.

      If you would like to support Kevin & Hannah's recovery, please visit: http://www.gofundme.com/helphannah-kevin

      A fund has also been established for the funeral expenses of Kyle Mathers, Dale Neibaur and Holly Novak. You can find more information about that here: http://bit.ly/1gYwyrc

      Barb and Gus are busy with RTX tonight so Gav & I made the very questionable decision to invite our girlfriends Meg & Ashley on the show. Wish us luck.

      What should we talk about?

      Relevancy over time

      2 months ago

      "I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

      -- Thomas Jefferson

      At the beginning of Podcast 344, you guys talked about what constitutes an apocalypse, and you made the claim that even if only 10% of the population died, society would break down. It should be pointed out that during the Black Death, anywhere from 75, to 200 million people died. It's argued that because Europe was so depopulated, it allowed some amount of social mobility, which gave rise to the Renaissance. This is still argued to this day by scholars, but the caste system in Europe was heavily changed once the plague had begun to die down.

      I had the great pleasure of getting to meet the talented Mr. Burnie Burns for the second time today after his speaking event in Lincoln, Nebraska.

      That man really knows how to give a motivational and informative seminar. I had an amazing time listening to his words and gathered a lot of useful information from what he had to say. Burnie was even kind enough to stay afterwards and meet everyone who came and take a picture. But what's great about Burnie is that he doesn't just take a picture. He also stops to have a short conversation with everyone he meets. And that's when you know someone truly respects and cares for their fans. They are willing to spend more of their time than they need to to make sure they get the experience they want.

      My experience is a great example of this. I got up to him, told him who I was and that I had met him a month before at RTX during one of his signings. Then I tried to motion the lady with my phone to go ahead and take the picture because I knew there so many people behind me and I didn't want to take up too much time myself. But then he stopped the camera and proceeded to ask me more questions and carry on the conversation. I was blown away. There was all these people behind me he still had to meet and he was willing to take the time to continue talking to me. We talked about RTX, my socks (which had chattering teeth on them), and a little bit about his presentation. Burnie really knows how to treat his fans and I am incredibly honored to have the experience with him that I had tonight.

      Burnie didn't have to come all the way to Lincoln, Nebraska to speak, but he did and I am one of a couple hundred people who are vastly appreciative of tonight.

      I am proud to call Burnie my idol.

      I have had the same profile picture since I created this account 4 years ago. Today I met Burnie Burns! I finally have a good reason to change my picture.

      Burnie came to Lincoln to give a presentation titled, "Creating Internet Content". He was nice enough to stick around for hours to meet fans and take pictures.

      The presentation was awesome. I learned a lot and I had a bunch of good laughs. Most of all it was great meeting him and interacting with him. I have honestly always felt that I want Rooster Teeth to focus on creating content that I enjoy. I don't need to take up their time with fan interaction. I enjoy their content and I am perfectly happy seeing them from my computer screen.

      However, seeing Burnie today makes me appreciate what he does for this community and Rooster Teeth's fans. He gives us a reason to laugh and smile. That is something I want to support.

      I am so excited to hear Burnie speak on creating internet content. I am going to bring my notebook, a pencil, and a whole lot of inspiration.

      Hey Burnie, can you talk about the abysmal failure of Stonewall on the podcast? It made almost nothing on opening weekend, partly because a lot of trans activists boycotted it.

      I know you're not much of a Tumblr fan, but I'd very much like it if you'd check out a blog I just started. Would you be so kind as to let me know what you think?
